Analogic Corporation Receives $16 Million Order for Its Aviation Security Systems

PEABODY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May. 7, 2009–
Analogic Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG) announced today that it has received
an order from L-3 Security & Detection Systems for Explosives Detection
Systems (EDSs) valued at approximately $16.1 million. The order includes
eXaminer® 3DX systems as well as eXaminer SX
systems, recently certified by the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA).

Peter Cempellin, Vice President and General Manager of Analogic’s
Security Systems Division, said, “This order signifies the strong
position the eXaminer 3DX still has in the marketplace. In addition,
this is the first order for our new eXaminer SX, which was certified by
the TSA in January of this year. The eXaminer SX provides industry
leading computed tomography (CT) technology in a smaller footprint,
giving smaller airports affordable, advanced explosives detection
capability. First commercial shipments, which will begin this June, are
destined for airports worldwide.”

The adaptable, streamlined eXaminer SX is suitable for airport lobbies
and baggage make-up areas and can also be fully integrated with baggage
handling systems. The lower cost eXaminer SX provides the same proven
detection capabilities as the larger eXaminer 3DX in a lighter, more
compact frame. The system is available in three configurations: in-line,
partially integrated, and standalone.

Both the eXaminer 3DX and eXaminer SX systems use 3-D Continuous-Flow CT
technology and generate high-resolution 3-D color images in real time.
The eXaminer systems also enable 360-degree rotational views of the
entire bag and its contents, and provide continuous automatic detection
of explosives.
